Speculation has surrounded the Swansea City midfielder who is out of contract.
He was considering a new offer from the Swans as well as interest from elsewhere but as it turns out it is Bramall Lane that becomes his preferred choice after seven years at the Swans.
Britton has long since been a fans favourite at the club and walked away with a host of awards during his time as well as winning two promotions with the side he joined initially on loan in 2002.
A battle against relegation to the conference followed but since then it has been almost all highs as Britton made over 300 appearances for the club and – when fit – was almost always one of the first names on the team sheet.
Good luck Leon – thanks for everything.
